Three familiar faces are headed back into the Top Chef: Last Chance Kitchen — and EW has an exclusive first look at the new season of the Emmy-winning digital series.

Carrie Baird and Brother Luck from season 15, and Jim Smith from season 14 are back for a chance at redemption and another shot at the coveted title of Top Chef.
